Concord, NC—April 27, 2017— The DIRTcar Summer Nationals and the Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals 2017 schedule promises a summer of hot action on the track.
The tours’ schedules mirror each other for all but one race during their 32 consecutive days on the road. The two touring Series embark on one of the most gruesome schedules in the motorsports industry as they will travel across eight-states-including Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Michigan, and Ohio— in four-and-a-half weeks with back-to-back racing nearly every night. The Late Model Series will take a break from racing only three times in 32 days, and the Modifieds will take four.
Every year the Series’ swing through June and July proves to be mentally and physically trying on drivers and their teams, preserving through their passion and dedication to the sport. The 2017 DIRTcar Summer Nationals and the Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals will kick off at Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, IL on June 14.
2017 DIRTcar Summer Nationals
The 2017 DIRTcar Summer Nationals season marks a major milestone for the tour as it hits its 30th consecutive year in the running. The best Late Model drivers in the country have graced the Summer Nationals stage over the past three decades including six-time Summer Nationals Champion Billy Moyer, four-time Champion Shannon Babb, three-time Champion Dennis Erb Jr., and two-time champions and father-son duo Bob and Bobby Pierce.
The 2017 schedule boasts 29 races and is broken down into four weeks: Tri State Week, Independence Week, Midwest Week and Champions Week. Each week a new champion will be named based on a weekly points system.
At the conclusion of the tour, one overall Summer Nationals Champion will be crowned based on the overall points accumulated. The Summer Nationals Championship will take place at Oakshade Raceway in Wauseon, OH on July 14-15.
Additionally, the DIRTcar Summer Nationals will cross paths with The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series in the 2017 season. The Series’ collide at Terre Haute Action Track on June 30 and at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 on July 1.

Note: Originally, a weekend at LaSalle Speedway was pre-scheduled as the tour opener. However, the June 16-17 races have since been cancelled by DIRTcar with sanctions lifted. Those races have been replaced with an event at Sycamore Speedway in Maple Park, IL as well as Peoria Speedway in Peoria, IL. The tour now opens a few days earlier.
